I’ve written about how much I love Jane’s on the Common before, but this time, we got to go back for brunch.
I can keep this one short and sweet. Jane’s serves amazing, unfussy food, with great service and astonishingly decent prices.
Jason’s eggs benedict with bacon ($10) came with homemade hollandaise sauce, but the real kicker was the sweet potato biscuit it all rested on. What a great change from the ho-hum English muffin.
I got the shrimp cake and eggs ($12) with gigantic pieces of shrimp, drizzled with cilantro lime aioli. It’s the same shrimp cake Jane’s serves as a dinner appetizer but I got to eat it in the morning. Whoohoo!
The dish itself is huge because the giant shrimp cake is served with potatoes, salad, sourdough toast and a bit of fruit.
Anyway, I can’t go on and on and on forever about how Jane’s rocks, so just go and check it out yourself.
